The Third Battle of New Orleans

Filed under: Mid-West Floods,New Orleans — Morwen Madrigal @ 4:02 pm

is becoming the battle for the soul of America.

I’m watching the Mid-West drown due to the ineffectivness of our Federal government and their ensconced hired hands. One of the greatest gifts this country has is Old Man River. He has done so much for us, but because of the needs of “bid’ness”, He was constrained and walled in and once in a while He must break out of those restraints. Nature sweeties… Nature.

This season is one of those times. (Fuck with Mama Nature and sooner or later you lose.) I’m watching the Mid-West lose right now. My heart goes out for them, especially since being from New Orleans I know what being “fucked” is. Been there and done that one.

There are two things to be done in this country: one is to completely redo our National infrastructure, and the second is that we people must build with some form of intelligence. And no more fucking “Glory” wars draining our Treasury. No more bail-outs for corporations and the damned shareholders. We take care of “home”.

America is our home. We live here.

We, the people, must start demanding accountability from the fucks we put into Office. We MUST, MUST know what is happening, and one of the ways to do that is to stop staring at the TV every night. We must inform ourselves. If you don’t try to take care of yourself, how can you count on others to do so? This quote may be from Emerson (not sure), “Life requires responsibility”.

Folks, it’s up to us to insure our lives, education and safety. Our elected officials are to do what we want and need. They have no other purpose in Life.  It is up to US to take care of the Common Good. This is our job as citizens of our Republic. This is our responsibility to each other.

“All of Life is a chain, and when one link breaks, we all feel the pain.” I have believed in that all of my life, and that is how I’ve fashioned my life.

Now I go to my altar and say prayers for our people in the Mid-West.
